TOUCH OF GOLD
AMSTERDAM | March 2, 2017
Let life be a sparkle and wear glitters and gold! That is basically my life motto. However, it often turns out that I will be wearing just a casual black jeans with my black turtleneck (my forever to-go outfit..). Every time I try to break that habit, I end up sitting on the floor of my mini walk-in-closet thinking I have nothing to wear.. BUT when I don’t force myself to not wear my black on black outfit, a statement outfit goes automatically. Then I finally see my gold trousers again, in the middle of all my black jeans.
Same with layering, which can be actually so fun to do. It’s easier to choose that turtleneck – sorry, it’s here again – over a flared sleeve blouse with another sweater and a collar to spice it up. However, once you gotta wear it all, you are much more satisfied with yourself than when you choose your basics again. Nothing wrong with these by the way, but we are talking about statements today. Same thing choosing sneakers or boots over these terrible high but oh so fashionable heels. Think about it the next morning you are standing in the front of your closet and try to choose at least one item different. Go for a touch of gold or something statement to have a fashionable outfit within an eyewink ;-).
I was wearing:
Sweater: Vintage, similar
Shirt: Zaful (fit small, take 1 or 2 sizes up)
Scallop Collar: COS
Lips: Dior Rouge Nude No. 458
